need. what we need is for the federal government to establish and create an environment where the private sector can flourish. >> talking about earmarks is exactly the kind of craziness we do not need any more. earmarked -- $16 trillion debt. earmarked account for 1/2 of 1% of the federal budget. we are better off, but talking about that is like talking about a drop of water in the ocean. the government does not create jobs. the private sector creates jobs. if you one example, take a look at texas. the people in texas are close to the people in arizona. why and there -- is their economy doing so fantastic? they are consistently ranked as one of the top state friendly to business. what does that mean? they mean lower taxes, low regulation. and not worry about government trading infrastructure. all the government has to do is get out of the way and let the free market to its thing. >> you have been criticized for not bringing home the bacon, not doing enough to get federal money into arizona. how do you respond? >> most of the earmarks, in the transportation bill. that had 6300

's an understatement. but you go up and in environment, at least i was fortunately enough to where we believe that it was perfectible. you know, it's very, i think, pretty much acceptable or maybe somewhat today to be critical or almost invariably critical of the country and pointing out what is wrong. there are obviously things wrong. there were obviously things wrong when i grew up in georgia, and that was pointed out. but it was always this unrelying -- underlying bailiff belief we were entitled -- it was the way we grew up. the nones who were immigrants who would explain it to us we were entitled as citizens of the country to be full participates. there was never any doubt that we were inherently equal. it said so in the decoration of independents. there were times later on -- make remarks reciting the not so pleasant remarks and reciting the pledge of allee again or say things i think were -- not be cell phones.

in the presidential environment, we're working hard to have those candidates run strong campaigns. there's only so much that a presidential campaign can do in terms of contacting households across the country. if you have a strong legislative candidate -- state, said that, whatever -- they're the ones who knock on the doors. -- state, senate, whatever -- they are the ones who knock on the doors. host: raising money for these candidates? guest: yes, we raise money, we give them services, we train them. you want to run the best possible campaign, so not only do they win, but they maximize turnout. host: what is the core mission like between gopac -- what is the coordination like between gopac and -- guest: we do not coordinate. host: just take a look here for our viewers, green is what you raised, red is what you spent over different cycles. if you look at 2012, the numbers look low compared to 2008. are you having trouble fund- raising because of super pac influence? how is campaign 2012 different than 2008? guest: now fund our organization with donations, as opposed to -- we are spending more this
in these situations? and this is an environment. the radio and tv environment, much like the search engine environment, where competition is always a click away. it was not a mouse click away. but competition was always a click away. you did not have to pay to switch. it was easy to switch in those situations. you might see how to market exercise power art to mark the answer is as the exercise market power to the volume and intensity of advertising, advertising is how you make money and the volume of advertising is how you do is how much money you can make. it is easy to start by thanking we did there is a lot of discussion about whether google has market power in the advertising market. that is not the place to start. the place to start is in search engine. a company with a great, successful product. but the company have market power? if they did, how would they go about exercising that? the answer is they would have more advertising. and because ads are a utility for consumers, consumers are not getting the content for free. they are getting the content by bearing the costs of that. i tried this the

environment. >> the capstone concept forward says the world is trending towards greater stability, yet it says the world is potentially more dangerous than ever. how will the stability overcome the threat? >> well, you know, when people ask me about afghanistan, the first thing i normally tell them is it's possible for violence and progress to coexist in places like afghanistan. i'd say the same thing about the paradox of stability and threat. they coexist. so i've talked about a security paradox which is violence is at an evolutionary low. and it is, except that the capabilities to impart violence are in the hands of people who heretofore wouldn't have had access to them. so you have a paradox of feeling as though the world is -- this is kind of the tom friedman the world is flat and connected and, therefore, is less likely to fight each other. maybe. but there's also the other school of thought that says it's in the unconnected parts of our globe where violence will be both more prevalent, but also more violent because the instruments of violence are more available now than they've ever been
or midpart of the novel to generationly maybe a more of a focus on the urban environment in the latest stages of the novel. but in so doing he demonstrates a little bit less familiarity with that slice of contemporary chinese life and i think these younger writers are probably more in their -- you might say native habitat when they're writing about these. >> brown: xiao qiang, a brief word on that? how this fits into contemporary writing? >> i think it's very interesting to see how the chinese state media lauded about his receiving this award. in contrast with the former two chinese, as you mentioned, that one is gao xingjian, in exile, the government doesn't approve his politics and the other is liu jiabao. mo yan is his pen name. and his pen name means "don't speak q. sots there's a popular internet joke saying "who is the first chinese winner of a nobel prize? don't speak. who's the second chinese nobel piece prize winner? don't speak. who's the third one? don't speak. this one is mo yan. but two other people are being banned and the chinese official media and chinese internet. >> pelley:
could be bad for you. doctors say if you're in a normal environment and you're not exposed to germs, overusing hand sanitizers might make you more susceptible to infections. doctors say a super-clean lifestyle could be partly to blame for the rise in the number of people with allergies and asthma. >> agree with that. pretty soon you'll be able to see the calorie count wheni do buy a soda from the vending machine. coke, pepsi and dr. pepper are rolling out machines that will feature calorie counts on the buttons of the machine. the machines will launch in chicago and san antonio next year. the american beverage association says the machines will remind customers to consider lower calorie alternatives. do you think there will be a rise in the diet coke and diet pepsi and all those drinks? >> i think people have to take responsibility for themselves. do you have to put the numbers on the machines? remind people? you know what you should and shouldn't be eating or drinking, come on. >> all right. 5:21. >> if i don't want to know, i don't want to know, don't put the numbers there. >> ign
the environment and something that was set in the debate last week. the president had the lead on energy and he said we were dealing now more than ever for gas and oil and he's right. then mr. romney came back with our bottle saying, mr. president, are drilling more for gas and oil, but it's not due to your policy. then he went on to say that because we are not drilling on federal and. why the president did not jump on that, i don't know. all the president would have to have said, was, mr. romney, do you think the american public would condone drilling in yellowstone? do you think the american public would condone drilling in yosemite? i just sat back from fly-fishing in montana and i was on federal land fly-fishing. i was on federal land where nothing is going on and i enjoyed that. i don't want to be fly-fishing next to an oil well or fracking liquid that is stored in pits that is poisonous. i just don't understand mr. romney saying we should be drilling like crazy on federal land. that just goes to show how he is uneducated about the circle of life in the natural environments. that's all i h
a meritorious environment, right? we're already past a place where race is like the thumb on the scale, right? >> i guess i would put it differently. i would say it's not a rigid quota. it can operate as a plus factor, but to some people would be viewed as a thumb on the scale. the brief that was sort of moving to me in looking at the case going -- o the fisher going up to the supreme court, oral arguments are on wednesday, is a brief written by deans of harvard and yale. notice that harvard and yale are where anine of the justices graduated. when we do admissions, we do a holistic merit-based analysis. if we build a diverse class, racial diversity is one component of that excellence. don't take our word for it. go to mckenzie and mckenzie has done amazing consulting work with fortune 500. again, we can have queasiness about whether or not that's a metric, whether it's a social justice issue, engaging in mediation rather than this is good for the bottom line. going back to the 2003 case, the briefs moving to sandra day o'connor, it was now being swapped out by alito which is why many are worr
come to live with and work with there. for the environment we had. we felt we needed more and not less. >> so all the experts on the ground are telling headquarters at the state department, we need this. and the answer kept coming back as? >> you've got to do with less. for what reasons, i don't know. >> sharyl, do those believe that if, in fact, those security teams had not been withdrawn, even though they can't really know the answer, but they may very well have been able to resisted the attack and saved lives? >> well, they certainly talked about that according to colonel wood. he says he wonders. he told us that armed members of his military team as well as the companion state department security team would have traveled to benghazi with ambassador wood had they still been in the country on september 11th. but on that day the u.s. was down 34 highly trained security officers in libya compared to just six months before. the state department told us they're still sorting through everything but that they don't see evidence of a lot of security requests that were denied. charlie? >> th
. for the environment that we had, we felt that we needed more and not less. megyn: joining me now is brad blakeman, former assistant to george w. bush. and the chairman of the dnc. gentlemen, welcome back. now we have had a bipartisan effort on top of capitol hill into exactly what the situation is there and why the ambassador and the others were not better protected. brad, how does this man's testimonial change the story? >> i think it shows that the truth eventually comes out. no matter how the white house wanted to stone unturned stone wall. it did not fit their political narrative once before a presidential election, but somehow osama bin laden is dead and al qaeda is forever vanished. it is not true. al qaeda is alive and well. he is doing harm to american citizens, we now know that our consulate in benghazi was substandard and we received a waiver from the state department with regard to security. the laws were inferior, that construction, rebar, our ambassador was not properly protected as he should've been should have been in moving around the country with proper security. the security was
let's go ahead and release that earlier. it will have a negligible effect on the environment and hopefully the supply situation. also refineries here, some going back on-line, helping -- they're getting repaired. so we should see relief sometime soon. most experts say we'll see that relief coming slow, that we haven't reached the peak as of yet. but over the next couple of weeks, perhaps by thanksgiving, we could see prices on the decline. but for now, looks like we might be dealing with pry high prices here. >> steve: how many refineries are off line right now, causing the spike? >> there are a number of big ones. one in northern california where there was a fire last -- we only have 14 refineries here in california. so if you have just a couple, like five of them off line, then we could see certainly a spike here in the gas. the real big issue is that regulation, the california regulation that wouldn't allow any of these oil companies to release that winter blend. so now that they can release the winter blend, we could see relief. >> gretchen: thanks very much for that upda
of the threat environment and whether they were properly implemented. the secretary has asked us to work as quickly and transparency as pot -- transparently as possible. this is a complicated review that will take time. we will be better able to assess the information we have. until then, it is an incomplete picture and, as a result, our answers today will be incomplete. we have always made clear we were given the best information we had at the time. for example, if any administration official, including any career official, were on television sunday, september 16, they would have said what ambassador rice said. the information she had at that point from the intelligence committee was the same that i had at that point. clearly, we know more today than we did after the attack. but we will continue consulting with you throughout this process. >> a portion of today's house oversight committee on diplomatic security in libya. you can see the entire hearing later tonight at 9:00 p.m. eastern here on c-span. in 90 minutes, c-span's campaign 2012 coverage continues with a massachusetts senate r
